A top Thai club has offered a nearly-one-year contract to a veteran Vietnam international, with a handsome fee for a Vietnamese player together with many perks, and it is now waiting for his nod, the striker confirmed to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Tuesday.

Bangkok United put on the table a US$80,000 transfer fee for Nguyen Anh Duc, a 34-year-old forward of the Vietnamese national team and V-League 1 side Becamex Binh Duong.

Duc would be paid $7,000 a month from February 18 to December 31, with an apartment and a car added as incentives.

The Thai club, who were runners-up in the Thai League 1 last season, also promised to give him bonuses depending on his appearances and achievements with the team.

Duc would receive a reward no lesser than the transfer fee if he could play over 75 percent of the Thai League 1 fixtures this season and take the club to the third position in the table.

“It’s just a one-year stint,” Duc said.

“But it’s a new challenge. It’s up to me and I’m still considering the offer.”

The striker is considered the old guard at Becamex Binh Duong, who lost 0-2 to reigning V-League 1 champions Hanoi in the Vietnamese National Football Super Cup on February 16.

He scored four goals for Vietnam at the Southeast Asian championship in December 2018, including the winner in the return final against Malaysia in Hanoi, helping the Golden Dragons claim the first regional trophy since 2008.
